This is so funny, but also I love how you describe everyone, even a few lines makes me feel I'd know them. It's wonderful writing. Also reminded me of our attempts to get coloured telly, then years later, computer.

Richly deserved, it's

Posted on Fri, 18 Jan 2019

Richly deserved, it's BEAUTIFUL, could feel the sweet air and see the colours. Is so interesting how you combine time into it, not just the rhythm of poetry but of your day. They seem sort of like Richard Long sculptures only not so hard....

Posted on Mon, 19 Nov 2018

this is wonderful reading. I like your two different voices, you slower, descriptive and full of rich images but an outsider and your friend chatty, personal and an insider, the difference emphasised by "you Canadians"
